Leeds United complete fourth summer signing as Joe Gelhardt reunited with former teammate
Leeds United added their fourth summer signing of this transfer window with the acquisition of highly-rated teenage midfielder Sean McGurk

Leeds United have confirmed the signing of Wigan Athletic midfielder Sean McGurk, bringing their summer acquisitions tally to four.

The Whites have tailed the 18-year-old for an extended period, having reportedly been keen to secure his signature last summer.

That would have seen McGurk join Leeds at the same time as Joe Gelhardt, but a deal could not be struck.

As a result, the Whites have been patient, and McGurk has left Wigan Athletic on a free transfer this summer as his contract at the DW Stadium had expired.

However, the club have been forced to come to an agreement with Wigan over compensation for McGurk.

This is owing to McGurk's age, in conjunction with Premier League and EFL legislation which states clubs whose players under the age of 24 leave under the Bosman ruling are entitled to compensation for their role in developing said player.

If an agreement over a fee cannot be met, it will go to a tribunal, where it will be decided by an independent panel - however that has not been the case in this situation.

McGurk is the second U23 signing Leeds have sealed this summer, after the addition of former Birmingham City winger Amari Miller.

He will join up with the U23 squad for the 2021/22 campaign, with the intention of following a similar arc to ex-teammate Joe Gelhardt.

Gelhardt and McGurk were on the scoresheet together for Wigan Athletic's U18s in the 2019/20 edition of the FA Youth Cup, defeating Birmingham City 4-0 - a game in which Amari Miller also featured on the opposing side.

McGurk also scored three goals in five FA Youth Cup matches last season.

Wigan has been a fertile spot for producing young talent in recent seasons, benefiting from its proximity to major academies such as Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City.

McGurk was released by Liverpool at age 13, subsequently joining the Latics.

Now, he will feature for Leeds United's U23s at Premier League 2 Division 1 level - a step up from any competition he has featured in thus far.

While many of his peers went on to make their debuts at the DW Stadium, McGurk did not manage to do so.

Nevertheless, his Leeds United switch represents a recognition of his talent from the Whites' academy head Adam Underwood.

After a year-long pursuit, Leeds finally have their man.

Leeds sign Latics midfielder.

Leeds United are pleased to announce the signing of Sean McGurk.

The 18-year-old joins the club for an undisclosed fee from Sky Bet League One side Wigan Athletic.

He has agreed a three-year-deal with the Whites, with his contract running until the summer of 2024.

Attacking midfielder McGurk last season helped Wigan’s Under-18s become Professional Development League National champions.

He hit 13 goals in the process, ensuring the Latics secured back-to-back league titles, along with five strikes in three games in their FA Youth Cup run.

McGurk will now link up with Mark Jackson’s Under-23 side, who will play in Premier League 2 Division 1 in the upcoming campaign.

He becomes the club’s fourth signing of the summer transfer window, following the arrivals of Amari Miller, Jack Harrison and Junior Firpo.

@AllLeedsTV

That's the 3rd new signing of the summer. Wigan fans will not like us. Firstly taking Gelhardt and now McGurk. Very promising young attacking midfielder/winger. He scores a lot for a midfielder contributing 15 goals in 25 app's for Wigan's U18's. Rumoured fee is only £250k.

Så, da var den handelen endelig i boks. Leeds har hatt følere ute før. Velkommen til Leeds, Sean :).

McGurknytt nå ja... Nå er sommeren her.

Med pappavitsen unnagjort så drister jeg meg til å si dette er en spennende signering. Joe har vel fortalt ham hva han har i vente på treningsfeltet og det ser ut som om han gleder seg til å prøve å imponere el loco. Han ser jo dritglad ut på bildet!

Velkommen!

Grei måte å debutere introdusere seg selv på selv om det var pre season

Likte dette sitatet:

But Sean McGurk is just loving life with his new friends:

“I’ve only been here a few weeks, but I can tell how close all the group is. If that’s how they have been off the pitch, then on the pitch it will be even better. That’s the main part of having a good team that works well. This season, with the league we are in, every single game will be tough."

Oppe i det hele kommer jeg på at Sean McGurk jo er et Joe Geldhart-produkt, så og si.
Da Joffy ankom ønsket Leeds også å kjøpe McGurk, men Wigan ville absolutt ikke selge.
Ett år senere, McGurk ville fortsatt til Leeds, og Wigan klarte ikke å stå imot lenger.
Så nå har gutta vært reunited i Yorkshire noen måneder allerede - og McGurk lovpriser team-spiriten han har møtt på U23-laget!

At begge er scousere og sikkert sitter i røde drakter på privaten får vi heller leve med.
